Columbus and his Spanish brethren came here and slaughtered every Taino they saw. We have nothing left of Taino culture. Thankfully, some of them survived on a few of the other island in the East.

Same with Haiti (and much of the Dominican republic, despite the claims of overwhelming taino blood, which is historically unlikely)

A lot of this information you can find on the web. It may take some digging, but its there. Sometimes a brother or sister will post some great info on FB, and I'll share it.

In the 90s we were being taught this story but they placed him in New England. It's like they were attempting to give us half truths to murk it all up.
